Help Me Give Back -- by Christine Lindsay

November is Adoption Awareness Month. 

Adoption. A word that touches one in three people, a word that conjures different emotions in those people touched by it. 

A word that might represent the greatest hope…the greatest question…the greatest sacrifice. 

Most of all, it’s a word that represents God’s immense love for his people. 

Adoption has certainly placed me in all of the above states of emotion. These days though, that word gives me one of my greatest joys, but it was a long, long, long time coming.

I wrote a non-fiction memoir FindingSarah Finding Me to reach out to:

·        Those touched by adoption
·        Those considering the scary prospect of adoption reunion
·        Those girls/women who find themselves in an unplanned pregnancy.

Because my own Adoption Story is so precious to me I could never accept
My birth-daugther Sarah on one of her
medical mission trips with Global Aid Network
payment for it.
100% of royalties from this book will be donated to Global Aid Network Women's and Children's Initiative. This is not a one-time thing, but for the entire lifetime of the book.

How could I take money for the gift that God gave me through the relinquishment of my baby? The gift of understanding how much He loved me.

Isaiah 49:15,16 Can a woman forget the baby at her breast and have no compassion on the child she has borne? Though she may forget, I will not forget you. See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands. 

I'm planning a huge Thunderclap blitz to tell people about this book and to raise money for my birth-daughter's mission. I'd love your help through my Thunderclap message, to raise funds to help needy women and children, the mission that braided my birth-daugher's heart with mine. If so, please go to this Thunderclap link http://thndr.me/lXBkPR so that you can help me share my message on November 18.

All I want to do is Give Back to the God who helped me through my deepest heartache to my deepest joy by discovering my true identity in Christ as I searched for my birth-daughter. Because sometimes it is only through giving up our hearts that we learn to trust the Lord.

I’m hoping that as this book gets shared, that this braided story that gives glimpses into the lives of other families in the adoption triad, that readers will see the beauty of our broken families, broken hearts, and broken lives.

A brief explanation about Thunderclap:

Thunderclap is a platform on social media, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) that allows people to pledge to a one-time concentrated message going out all at once, (My date November 18 at 12 pm EST), on YOUR Facebook or Twitter or Tumbler. Think of it as a massive flash mob to promote my message. This pledge is scam free and completely safe in putting out this one-time message. 

Thank you for considering pledging to helping me with this desire: To encourage hurting people, and to give back in some small way.

    1. Thank you so much Narelle. Amazing to think that Adoption touches one in three people. Even in the best of adoption stories there is still emotional pain. After all, Adoption starts out with loss on different levels. The loss of a birth-mother's baby, and often the adoptive mom's ability to conceive and carry a baby to full term.
